Here’s What’s New In Las Vegas For Summer 2023 (2023)

The allure of Las Vegas continues to entice visitors. Sin City feels busier than ever and, with the latest crop of openings, for good reason. If you’re headed to the sleepless destination this summer, there are several new restaurants, bars, and attractions to check out both on and off the Strip. Whether it’s a Parisian-inspired lounge with live entertainment, an exclusive omakase experience, or a horror-themed escape room, there’s something for everyone. And to help you plan an epic trip to Vegas this summer, here’s a full look at some of the best new additions to Sin City.


Toca Madera Las Vegas

Tucked between Aria Resort and the Shops at Crystals, Toca Madera is a modern Mexican steakhouse with a high-energy atmosphere fueled by house music, fire breathers, and dancers. Standout dishes include the pomegranate guacamole, sashimi mexicano with leche de tigre, street corn, and a 40-ounce tomahawk served with bone marrow, but don’t forget to also add on a sampling of A5 Kobe and olive wagyu. And if you’re a fan of agave spirits, the creative cocktail menu—which includes two pages dedicated to just margaritas—is a dream materialized. While the restaurant opened last August, over the past couple of months they’ve introduced Mezcal Mondays, a brief menu of discounted mezcal drinks and bites, and a weekend brunch where the menu features specialties like tres leches French toast, breakfast enchiladas, and Vegas-exclusive tipples.

(Video) The Craziest Stuff Happening in Las Vegas [May 2023 News & Updates]

Tao Group Hospitality is doubling down on Vegas and their latest opening brings French-Mediterranean fare to Aria. With dramatic interiors by Rockwell Group—featuring royal blue drapery, beaded chain canopies, and a theatrical ceiling installation—this is yet another one of the Tao’s stunning outlets where the vibe is as important as the food. Signatures include the omelette, filled with crème fraiche and chives and topped with caviar; whole dover sole with lemon caper butter; and dry-aged ribeye with sauce vert. To complement the dishes, the cocktail menu is comprised of inventive twists on classics while an extensive wine list features some of the finest bottles from around the world.

1228 Main

Las Vegas’s Arts District has been undergoing a renaissance these last several years and the happening neighborhood is gearing up for another stellar addition this June. David Robins, Wolfgang Pucks’ longtime executive chef–turned–managing partner, is behind this forthcoming casual café by day, upscale restaurant by night. Inspired by his San Francisco roots, 1228 Main will offer a variety of house-baked bread and pastries, dishes highlighting seasonal ingredients, and a thoughtfully curated wine selection.

Proper Eats

Replacing the buffet at Aria Resort & Casino, Proper Eats is the latest food hall to open on the Strip. There are 11 venues in total that cover a variety of cuisines and include outposts from around the world as well as original concepts. Standouts include Seoul Bird for Korean friend chicken, most notably the K-Stack Chicken Sandwich; Lola’s Burgers for a comforting smash burger; Shalom Y’all’s smooth and creamy hummus; and Laughing Buddha’s unctuous bowls of ramen. To was it all down, Proper Bar offers a mix of classic and specialty cocktails, while a swanky speakeasy is becoming a popular evening spot for craft tipples, but more on that below.

Stanton Social Prime

Inspired by the Stanton Social in New York City, Tao Group Hospitality has brought another one of Chris Santos’ hot spots to Vegas. The menu features some of the chef’s famous signatures, like French onion soup dumplings; new creations such as a smoked butter board, capitalizing on one of the latest social media–fueled food trends; and an impressive steak selection that includes a hefty 64-ounce tomahawk. And while the theatrical dining room with an Art deco flair is a feast for the eyes, so are the dramatic presentations, such as flambéed au jus poured tableside and nostalgic desserts served in cheeky vessels like a vintage popcorn box. To wash it all down, the craft cocktail menu features creative riffs on classics, along with a short blurb on the history and inspiration behind each drink for an educational moment. Just don’t go too overboard—Omnia Nightclub just happens to be next door.

Min’s Test Kitchen

For more than three years Min Kim has helmed Wynn Las Vegas’s lauded Mizumi. While the restaurant will be temporarily closed this summer for renovations, the celebrated chef is getting his own pop-up that’ll start on May 26 and is currently slated to open through late September. Featuring progressive Asian cuisine inspired by numerous countries, Kim is using Test Kitchen to show off more of his own personality, with dishes reflecting his Korean heritage and time spent working at Michelin-starred restaurants in Tokyo. In addition to an à la carte option, there will also be an omakase experience showcasing off-menu specials, but make sure to sign up for text notifications via the website for your best chance at locking in a spot.

Dominique Ansel

It was just a decade ago that Dominique Ansel became a household name overnight with the invention of the cronut. Hundreds of people would line up at his eponymous bakery in New York City for the following years in hopes of getting their hands on the croissant-donut hybrid pastry, which would often sell out in hours. Since then, the chef has scaled up operations, with cronuts readily available at multiple stores worldwide, including his latest at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. You’ll not only find the iconic cronut and his other famed inventions like the frozen s’mores and cookie shot, the latter of which is offered 24 hours a day thanks to a robot-manned vending machine, but also a new collection of ice cream–inspired pastries for the summer. And if you need something quick in the morning, it’s also a great spot for coffee and savory breakfast sandwiches.

Wakuda’s Omakase Room

Chef Tetsuya Wakuda of two-star Waku Ghin in Singapore made a splash in Vegas when he opened a namesake restaurant last June at the Palazzo. By the end of the year, a secret omakase room had arrived, offering the most exclusive experience of its kind on the Strip. Hidden at the end of a dim corridor, the evening begins with canapés and bespoke cocktails in the Omakase Room’s bar before proceeding into the eight-seat dining room for an extraordinary meal. The multi-course meal differs day to day, but the menu will focus on seasonal ingredients, fresh seafood, and Japanese delicacies like wagyu beef. Sake and wine pairings are available, but this year Wakuda has also teamed up with Rémy Martin for a special Louis XIII tasting.

The Sundry

About 15 minutes from the Strip, a new enclave known as UnCommons is aspiring to become the next shopping and dining destination in Las Vegas. While some key elements of the 40-acre project are still underway, one anticipated component is slated to open in June. The Sundry, a curated food hall, will feature 12 concepts, many of which come from the West Coast. Among them are San Francisco’s Smitten Ice Cream; Ria Dolly Barbosa’s Petite Peso, where the food will reflect a combination of the chef’s Filipino heritage and her L.A. upbringing; and a second outpost of SoulBelly, an ode to various regional barbecue styles by James Beard–nominated Bruce Kalman.

Lago by Julian Serrano

One of Bellagio’s cherished lakeside dining options, Lago by Julian Serrano has refreshed its menu to celebrate Italy’s love for homemade pastas, aged steaks, and fresh seafood. Kick things off with a classic antipasto board or snack on a thin-crust pizzetta as you wait for a whole branzino (boneless, no head) or bowl of linguine with fresh clams to be delivered to your table. And not only do you get a delicious meal, you’ll also be spoiled with a front-row seat to the fountain show at the indoor-outdoor restaurant.

Ramsay’s Kitchen

Gordon Ramsay continues to expand his Vegas empire with Ramsay’s Kitchen at Harrah’s. The sleek dining room is divided into three sections for a more intimate ambiance. A concise menu features many of the acclaimed chef’s signature dishes, such as beef Wellington and sticky toffee pudding, and largely leans American. And if you have a sweet tooth in the morning, pop in for breakfast and order the sticky toffee waffles or, better yet, for weekend brunch with bottomless mimosas.

Villa Azur

Combining French-Mediterranean fare with Miami’s energy, Villa Azur doubles as a restaurant and party. Located on the Palazzo side of the Grand Canal Shoppes, entertainers, flashing lights, and booming music from a live DJ sets the stage for an animated meal. Bottles of bubble come out with sparklers, the saxophonist hops atop tables, and the champignon sauce for the pates a la meule is flambéed right in the dining room. It’s a fitting prelude for a night out, or perhaps even a replacement for the club.

Chī Asian Kitchen

Taken from the Chinese word meaning “to eat,” Chī is one of the latest additions to the recently renovated Strat Hotel. An extensive menu highlights a variety of regional Chinese cuisines, covering the gamut from Cantonese dim sum favorites to Shanghainese fried rice cakes, along with a few dishes pulled from Korean and Japanese fare, such as bulgogi fried rice and garlic teriyaki chicken donburi, respectively. But whatever you opt for your mains, make sure to start with the crispy, perfectly seasoned salt and pepper calamari and end your meal with the egg tarts, where a ridiculously flaky butter crust cradles a subtly sweet egg custard that’ll leave you wanting more.

Bars and Clubs

Easy’s Cocktail Lounge

Nestled behind Easy Donuts at Proper Eats, this new upscale speakeasy with live entertainment is quickly becoming a beloved spot on the Strip. A leather-bound menu reveals a brilliant mix of classic tipples, craft cocktails, and “show stoppers,” where bold and creative flavor combinations are matched with eye-catching presentations. And the whimsy doesn’t end with drinks—indulge in some caviar and you’ll find the delicacy cradled in a faux Fabergé egg, served on a silver tray with all of the expected accoutrements and flutes of chilled Belvedere.

Rouge Room

(Video) The 10 Best FREE Things To Do in Las Vegas for 2023! 😋

Summerlin just got a swanky new supper club thanks to Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa’s Rouge Room. Swathed in a scarlet hue, hence the name, the indoor-outdoor lounge has a sexy ambiance with a Parisian panache à la the 1920s. Here, cocktails veer on the classic side and even includes an extensive martini menu that includes a variety of floral and herbal tinctures, served via a roving cart. When it comes to food, expect everything from a fanciful king crab pasta to humble chicken tenders, the latter of which can be elevated with a helping of caviar, as is the case with many dishes. Live entertainment is delivered via DJs and pianists while Saturday evenings dubbed L’Experience du Rouge, a take on Moulin Rouge, turns into a full-blown party with performers and a live band. But if imbibing in the afternoon is more your speed, the outdoor space turns into an upscale pool party from Thursday to Monday with eight private cabanas, cushy loungers, and full service.

LowKey Afters at Marquee Nightclub

There’s a new after-after-party in town thanks to Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. An extension of their Wednesday affair, LowKey Afters will now also take place on Saturday nights starting from 2 a.m. in the club’s intimate Library space. Keep the party going with deep house tunes by local DJs until six in the morning.

Jalisco Underground

Located underneath Wally’s Wine & Spirits at Resorts World Las Vegas, Jalisco Underground is an ode to agave spirits. Backlit bottles line the bar’s wall while the rest of the subterranean space is scattered with barrels. Partake in a variety of tequila and mezcal or opt for one of the specialty cocktails with Mexican flavors, like the Underground Margarita made with Ancho Reyes, a chili liqueur made in Puebla, or the Monte Paz, where mezcal is combined with mole bitters, vanilla, and cinnamon. And if you arrive later in the evening, you’ll get to enjoy your drinks to live Latin jams from a DJ or band.

Activities and Entertainment


One of the best shows in Las Vegas just got a revamp. Formerly known as Opium, the Spiegelworld production continues to follow its outer space theme, but with an adjusted script and fresh jokes. Additionally, slight changes have been made to the stage; seats are even closer to the action than before; and, most notably, there’s a slew of new acts, including a trio of female acrobats-cum-contortionists and the Guinness World Record–holding Limbo Queen. Fans of OPM’s sister show Absinthe—which, by the way, has added new pre-show food and beverage options in celebration of its 12th anniversary—will be excited to learn that roller skating duo Billy and Emily England have switched over. And fret not, there’s still a bubble man (different performer, same concept) to prove just how enthralling bubbles can be.

CBD Treatments at Sahra Spa, Salon & Hammam

It has now become widely recognized that CBD has relaxation, pain relief, and anti-inflammation benefits when applied topically. As such, numerous spas in Vegas have begun to harness its healing properties and incorporate the ingredient into treatments, one of them being Sahra Spa at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The 43,000-square-foot oasis offers a massage, tension-relief bath, and mani-pedi with CauseMedic CBD products, but it’s the Moroccan Journey Hammam Experience that gives you a complete look into just how incredible Sahra really is. The 130-minute treatment starts off in the hammam—one of the few authentic hammams in the country—with a dual exfoliation that includes a CBD coffee and Himalayan salt scrub, a moisturizing mud mask, and time spent in the steam room and soaking tub. It then concludes with a full-body massage using CBD cream that’ll inevitably leave you feeling more relaxed than ever before. While you’ll be tempted to head straight back to your room for a nap, make sure to check out the spa’s facilities, like the oversize jacuzzi and cool mist room, before leaving Sahra.

The Séance Show at Lost Spirits Distillery

Lost Spirits Distillery isn’t your ordinary distillery. Cofounded by Bryan Davis—who has quite a few accolades that includes inventing a device that artificially ages alcohol in just a matter of days—came up with the ingenious idea to combine a distillery tour, tastings, and a show into a singular experience. Located on the same grounds as Area 15, guests roam around an elaborate labyrinth with circus-like décor, weaving in and out of rooms to sample rums and admire various performers that run the gamut from singers to acrobats. While Lost Spirits opened in 2021, a late-night addition called the Séance Show was added this past November. Offering an even more intimate experience, entertainers can sometimes reach within a foot away from guests with stage-side seating. The after-hours spectacle is complemented with cocktails by Alex Velez (from Netflix’s Drink Masters competition) along with séance and ghost storytelling for a spooky twist.

David Blaine: In Spades

More than just a magician and illusionist, David Blaine is also known for extreme, Houdini-esque stunts. In his latest show at Resorts World Las Vegas, Blaine combines all three of these elements into a single show—an incredible feat that leaves viewers perplexed and in awe. Watch as he attempts a dangerous 80-foot drop, which caused him to dislocate his shoulder during one of his shows, and hold his breathe underwater for upwards of 10 minutes, with several tricks involving the audience in between. Blaine’s residency is currently slated to last until July 15.

Princess Diana: A Tribute Exhibition

More than just an exhibition, this collection of over 700 artifacts is akin to a journey through Princess Diana’s life. Set on the third floor of the Shops at Crystals, it pays tribute to the beloved “people’s princess” along with some other well-known royals through personal effects, memorabilia, and iconic garments. For an in-depth experience with keen insights, make sure to pick up one of the audio guides upon arrival.

Escape IT

If you love escape rooms and horror films, this may just be right up your alley. The IT-themed experience spans more than 30,000 square feet and includes more than 20 interactive rooms with state-of-the-art special effects, animatronics, and live actors for an immersive and frightening adventure. Navigate some of the franchise’s most iconic locations, like Neibolt House and Quality Meats, with your creative thinking skills while eluding Pennywise. “Chapter One” is currently open and “Chapter Two” is set to launch soon.


While Awakening debuted just last November, the show didn’t quite resonate with audiences like Wynn Las Vegas had hoped it would and was put on pause last month. The show, which replaced the beloved Le Rêve, is extraordinary from a production value standpoint, with intricate costumes and an impressive stage that takes full advantage of modern technology. However, the plot was difficult to follow and, while there was plenty of choreography, it was light on jaw-dropping stunts that many have come to expect out of a Vegas show. The team has been taking this time to rework some things and tickets are currently being sold for June 6 and onwards. While Wynn Las Vegas has yet to disclose what changes will be made, we have high hopes that Awakening’s second act will be more successful.


If you thought Resorts World’s winter attraction Enchant was over the top, wait until you see Transfix. Adjacent to the hotel, this two-acre exhibit features more than 50 interactive, kinetic, and illuminated large-scale pieces in various mediums, including sound and video.

Arcade at Horseshoe

Most only cost $1.50, including classics like Skee-Ball and air hockey; supersized versions of shooter games like Space Invaders; and even select racing games. Claw machines are just 50 cents more while VR games will set you back $8 per run.

Immersive Disney Animation

Can’t make it to Disney this year? Then consider taking the little ones to this immersive experience at the Shops at Crystals. Produced by Lighthouse Immersive Studios, the same company behind Van Gogh Exhibition: The Immersive Experience, the show will combine scenes, music, and elements from 40 Disney movies that include classics like The Lion King and The Little Mermaid to newer hits such as Frozen and Encanto. Rediscover the magic in a way like never have before with floor-to-ceiling projections and special effects that’ll make you feel as though you’re one of the characters yourself.
